Sometimes it takes a little longer to realize your dreams.

For some families who face seemingly insurmountable obstacles in overcoming homelessness, they need extra time to set their strategy and conquer the hurdles that are holding them back.

Hope House is a four-unit apartment complex that offers families the additional time and support as they seek to regain their independence.  The Program Supervisor works with families to identify needs, strengths and weaknesses and helps them to establish goals and an action plan.  Families are provided guidance and assessment to help conquer day-to-day challenges and are linked with community resources such as:

• Job search, employment • Assistance to stabilize income/benefits • Credit repair/budgeting • Education • Basic life skills • Parenting skills

Families are accepted into the Hope House program through an application process. They must possess the desire to overcome their circumstances and be resolved to seeing their plan through to fruition.

A copy of the application is available below.  We encourage interested families to contact us regarding availability.
